The Sultan of Sokoto has blamed the spate of killings in the north on government’s inability to discharge its obligation to protect citizens.

“If you see such thing happening, then there must be a failure of government. But if government wakes up to its responsibility, some of these things will not happen,” said His Eminence Alhaji Abubakar Saad III at the General Assembly of the Northern Traditional Rulers Council held in Kaduna yesterday.

The Sultan, who is chairman of the council, regretted: “We have seen how innocent people have been killed, innocent children two years old, pregnant women and children brought out of their mothers’ wombs. These are the issues we are saying we will never stop talking about until our political leaders take the responsibility and help us out.”

He said: “We will discuss some of those issue that are of concern like herdsmen/farmers’ clashes and irresponsible killings of innocent women and children that people don’t want to talk about.”

He also urged state “governors never to keep those issues away from their tables. We cannot keep such things under the carpet. If we do, we are encouraging more of such dastardly acts.”

Nigerians have been thrown into panic following the re-emergence of long queues at fuel stations in parts of the country.

The situation, amid rumour of hike in pump price of petrol, sparked fear that the festive season could be marred by scarcity of the product.

In Abuja, many motorists who closed from work yesterday were unable to buy fuel, as many stations were shut.

At about 8 p.m., there was a long queue at the NNPC retail station along Kubwa Expressway that kept motorists waiting for hours.


One buyer, Alabi Ajibola, said: “Most fuel stations have closed. I have been on the queue for about two hours. This should not be at this Christmas period.”

Haruna Bashir, a commercial driver, said his side mirror was destroyed as he jostled to buy fuel. He disclosed that he had visited more than five stations before trying his luck at the NNPC retail station.

The shortage, which began in Sokoto at the weekend, worsened yesterday morning as motorists resorted to panic buying.

Some filling stations belonging to the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) increased the price of a litre to N150.
